Release Day Blitz w/Review - Lucas

 

Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: September 19, 2017

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.

 

Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.

 

Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.

 

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Lucas (Cold Fury Hockey, #8)Lucas by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #8, in the Cold Fury Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and for complete understanding of this sexy series - I recommend reading this series in order.

Stephanie is working in an interim position. At a major charity event, she meets someone who can change her whole life. If she has the courage to let him in.

Lucas meets Stephanie at an event. He is drawn to her immediately. They do not really have much in common. But neither can stay away....

This book makes me wish there are more starts to give. I really enjoyed reading this story, and it is an excellent add to the Cold Fury series. I literally laughed, while I cried reading this amazingly sexy book. I found the characters real, and very fun.

About the Author:

 

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

 

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

 

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

 

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

Twists and turns galore!
Blood Runs Cold - Angela Kay

This second case of Lieutenant DeLong has just as many twists and turns as the first one, only this one brings it closer to home for our endearing Lieutenant. Once again, Kay has given us a book that is very well written and the story is both emotional and gripping, especially when DeLong's past comes back to haunt him. This series is a bit reminiscent of John Sandford's Prey series in that the author has created a character that is far from perfect, but still someone to root for as he doggedly searches for answers. DeLong doesn't always follow the rules to the letter, but he is determined to find justice for the victim, even if he has to arrest his own brother. This author is certainly one to watch in the crime thriller genre, and I hope to see more of Jim DeLong.

Cold Blood: A gripping serial killer thriller that will take your breath away (Detective Erika Foster Book 5) - Robert Bryndza

With thanks to Netgalley and Bookoutre for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.

 

I love the Erica Foster series and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read this book before the official release on 20/09/17.

 

I have read all five books in this series and I think Cold Blood is the best book yet.  Detective.Chief Inspector Foster and her friend/colleague Detective Inspector Kate Moss are called to the River Thames where the dead body of a man was found on the beach.  The man had been dismembered and put into a suitcase.  Two weeks later the dismembered body of a female in a suitcase is found further up the shore.  Erica and Kate have to find out if the victims knew each other and why were they murdered.

 

During the investigation Erica is attacked by ruthless drug dealers. She later finds out one of her colleagues was heavily In debt to the dealers, in desperation they provided confidential information to pay off the debt.

 

In between chapters are diary excerpts from 18 year old Nina Hargreaves and her boyfriend Max.  Nina instantly fell in love with Max who is in thirties.   The diary extracts show how Max manipulated Nina until she was cut off from work, friends and family.  The couple definitely had parallels to the infamous child murderers who killed together in the North of England in the sixties.  Max who thinks he is an intellectual who has never been given a break, and Nina who will do anything Max asks.

 

I am sorry Erica's friend Isaac Strong only appeared in the background of the story.  I hope he will appear more in the next book.

 

Cold Blood was utterly

 

compelling.  The tension was so high I read the last 60 % of the story In one sitting.  Congratulations Robert you deserve your success.

Lucas: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey) - Sawyer Bennett

Book 8 gives us Lucas Fournier, Max's younger brother.  Luc enjoys his life of hockey, partying and woman and has no interest in settle down just yet.  When Luc is traded to the Cold Fury, he is excited to be playing with his brother and the possibility of winning the Stanley Cup.

While at a team function, Luc flirts Stephanie Frazier, the Museum curator.  One thing leads to another and the two of them find themselves leaving the museum for a night of intense pleasure.  Imagine Luc's surprise when Stephy shows up four weeks later with the news that she is expecting and that's where the fun begins.

Luc comes from a very close and loving family.  While it may not be the perfect time to have a kid, he finally accepts the news.  He explains to Stephy that he wants to be very involved in everything.  This throws Stephy for a loop.  She is used to having to do everything for herself, since she doesn't have a family in the true sense of the word.

I loved Luc.  He was such a great fun and sexy guy.  He rushed head first into the pregnancy with such great excitement.  Stephy reacted very differently.  While she knew she wanted to keep the baby, she just wasn't sure she would be a good mom.  Stephy is very guarded with her life because of her past.  Stephy doesn't let anyone in and certainly doesn't accept any help from others so she is very wary of Luc.  The two of them agree to relationship of mutual pleasure until the baby is born.  Of course this leads to deeper feelings on both of their parts.  Luc wants it all with Stephy, but because of her past, she can't.  It was a VERY long and emotional road for Luc and Stephy to get to their happy ever after, but it was certainly worth it.  

I really enjoyed Luc's little sister, Simone.  She is going to be a real ball buster and I can't wait for her story with Van!
